Barber Dimes were issued from 1892 to 1916. Charles Barber was the designer and Barber Dimes were struck in Philadelphia, Denver, New Orleans, and San Francisco.
There are many scarce dates in this series with the 1894-S Barber Dime being one of the most famous rarities in all of American numismatics. Only 24 coins were struck and examples of this rare Barber Dime have fetched over one million dollars at auction!
